NEW TRAFFIC SIGNAL AT THE
KAPOLEI PARKWAY AND KOLOWAKA DRIVE INTERSECTION           

(Fri., February 18, 2011)--- The City and County of Honolulu will begin operating a new traffic signal on Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at the intersection of Kapolei Parkway and Kolowaka Drive in Ewa Gentry.

             “The City is continuing its efforts to increase traffic safety at heavily-traveled intersections, said Wayne Yoshioka, Acting Director of the Department of Transportation Services.  The traffic signal installation incorporates the latest design elements to ensure safe and efficient vehicular movement.  Combined with pedestrian countdown signals, restriping, and continuing public education, this traffic signal improvement will also make pedestrian crossings of Kapolei Parkway and Kolowaka Drive safer for everyone.”

            The Department of Transportation Services is currently flashing the new signals to warn motorists and pedestrians of the upcoming activation.  The signals will go “live” on Tuesday, February 22, 2011.
